1Why do people Scuba dive?
Scuba takes you to a completely different world with colors, creatures, shapes, and layers you can only find in the ocean; a world without mobile phones, traffic, nagging kids and deadlines. Freedom is a word many first timers use when describing their first dive. As a PADI Open Water Diver, escaping to a peaceful world to meditate, relax and entertain your senses is as easy as gearing up and dropping down! Scuba diving allows you to explore the underwater universe from old shipwrecks to perfect reefs. The world is truly your oyster. Diving allows you to connect with the environment and bond with the natural world. It will change your perception of the world.
2Can I learn Online?
Whether you're busy with family or work commitments, or just want to take it slow, you can now complete the theory portion of most PADI courses online with PADI eLearning. After all, noone likes to sit in a classroom on their holidays. Complete the theory portion prior to arrival in your own time, and you can enjoy the diving without the classroom! You can start immediately! With eLearning online you learn via an interactive web-based program with easy to follow theory, videos and multiple choice knowledge reviews and exams.
3Do you have a training pool?
Our confined water training sessions are conducted in our brand new, purpose built swimming pool. A confined water training session should be just that; CONFINED! A dedicated swimming pool is without a doubt the perfect place to conduct these sessions safely and comfortably. Many dive centres will try and tell you that itís better to complete a confined water training session in the ocean. On a perfect day, completing some aspects of confined water in a shallow bay can be fun, but when you are dropping in for a day of skill practice, a dive-specific pool with a shallow and deep end; is WAY safer than the open ocean which is subject to currents, tides and possibly boat traffic? It's natural to be feeling a little apprehensive and nervous, being asked to complete skills such as removing and replacing the mask or regulators underwater. The calm and clear conditions a swimming pool offers is in our opinion absolutely necessary. Shallow bays are not ideal if there are other factors like wind, waves, poor visibility and other environmental conditions that will negatively affect the safety or comfort of our students. Our swimming pool is built for scuba diving and offers you the best possible start on your way to becoming an Open Water diver. Why would you settle for anything but maximum comfort?
4Can I complete my PADI course in 2 or 3 days ?
